Donations for Erinn

$24,733 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 156 people in 3 months
Created February 1, 2018
Erinn has recently been diagnosed with an  aggressive cancer which has now metastasized. She’s fighting for her life and trying to spend as much time as possible with her gorgeous little man who will be turning 3 in March.

We are collecting donations in an effort to alleviate any any financial stresses on her family during this difficult time…. and possibly set up a meal delivery service for the home.

Erinn passed away, surrounded by her loving parents and husband Dave, in the early morning of April 11 at the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice in Kanata. She was comfortable there and was accompanied by her husband for the duration of her stay. Her suffering was minimal. She was at peace with what was happening and was enjoying a desperately needed sleep under sedation when her disease finally caught up with her. Dave and the "little man" Jameson are heartbroken but surrounded by love and support from devoted family and friends. She and her husband are eternally grateful for the crucial support provided by their parents, families, and friends through such a difficult time. Erinn requested that her loved ones enjoy a celebration of life, instead of a funeral. Plans for the celebration are in progress. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating in her memory to Hospice Care Ottawa; she and her family are inspired by the care, support, and beauty at the Ruddy-Shenkman facility. Alternatively, donations can also be made to young Jameson's education savings plan, either through the family or through this GoFundMe campaign. Updates about the upcoming celebration will be made at her blog at https://metastaticme.wordpress.com and you are all encouraged to enter your email address in the sidebar of the blog, to be automatically notified when announcements are made. Love and hugs to you all.

Happy Sunday everyone!

Here I was thinking this campaign was winding down, only to see that as of this afternoon your generosity has taken us to nearly double our original target.

Erinn and Dave are now back home and are enjoying some well-deserved family time with Jameson. Erinn is thankful to be home, and to continue this journey from a more comfortable space.

My deepest thanks to each of you for your incredible support. The impact of your donations is immeasurable, and goes far beyond just the financial side. The most meaningful part is seeing how far reaching and genuine your love is for this amazing woman.

As Dave said earlier, you guys truly are "tops".

Holy smokes people! Look what you went and did! Your generosity and support have surpassed all expectations we had for this fundraiser. In a little over 24 hours, your donations made quick work of our $5,000 goal, and they just keep coming.

Erinn and Dave are still hopeful to make it back home today and to settle into a more normal routine. As Dave expressed yesterday, the support you all have given has been truly overwhelming. They send their deepest thanks to each of you.

Again, thank you so much for your loving messages and generosity in blowing past our original goal. You guys are incredible!

Good morning everyone! I can't thank each of you enough for the overwhelming support you've shown in less than 24 hours. It's truly inspiring to hear your sentiments and well-wishes for Erinn, Dave and Jameson.

Caroline and I visited them last night, and Erinn is doing great. Four days of radiation haven't changed her a bit, and she's still the loving, funny, beautiful girl we all know. They're very much looking forward and hopeful to be able to go home tomorrow, to give Jameson a thousand hugs and kisses, and to continue this battle in more comfortable surroundings.

Erinn and Dave are so appreciative for everyone's kindness and support through these difficult days. You guys are beyond awesome.

Big love to all of you!
